Anyone seen story in printed (not online) NWN Advertiser re Richard stating he believes that Tesco & Sainsbury's are conspiring to keep local prices up, and that he's a Tesco Manager; implies he still is.

Can't imagine my employers being too happy about an employee making such statements in the media;
however we know he has his mind on other career choices in 2 years!

I thought it was Asda that RG used to work for.

More here on NWN:

http://www.newburytoday.co.uk/2013/employe...ol-pump-mugging

Would have thought a possible breach of his employment contract.

Clearly doesn't see his future there I imagine!

Quite. I would think more of him if he did not still take a salary from a company that is "mugging" people.

I'd say it rather brave of him actually even if it was for political reasons.

Indeed. He's doing something about the injustices he sees, and that's what politics is supposed to be about, and I applaud him. I'm very disappointed to see that the Labour party appear to have marginalised him for his activism, I think they would have done well to support his campaigning, but as it is they really do seem to be a spent force in Newbury. If I thought they would support him I'd say that Richard would do well to move over to the Lib Dems as he won't get anywhere without a platform.

According to the local hacks he is one of the night managers, not exactly my image of a 'senior trading manager'

Northampton Telegraph

As a wicked thought.... Is RG able to claim mileage for his drive to work? Thatcham to Corby must cost a mint!!

Seems a bit strange, working for Tesco in Corby but promoting the need for an Asda in Newbury.

That would fine except he isn't promoting the need for an Asda. More strawman fallacies I fear.

Yes he is.

Promoting the need for an Asda in Newbury

Why do you persist with the 'straw man' thing?

Actually this isn't new. A couple of months ago Newbury was featured on one of the news channels saying exactly what Richard Garvie has said. They showed you that Reading - just up the road - was cheaper. So they certainly won't worry about what Mr Garvie has said when the same has been said on national news.

Quite agree; whatever his motivation, at least he is shaking things up and asking the right questions. As you say, it is very odd that the local Labour people haven't capitalised on his enthusiasm. Wasn't there a LibDem tie up in the air awhile back? Seemed to crash land because of the usual LibDem egos not wanting any real competition to disturb their comfortable equilibrium. The real issue is that not one of the major parties want any ideas or proposals filtering up from the membership. Policy and direction for all three is in the hands of the party spinners; who certainly don't want little people damaging their democracy! The only reason for local party members is to do the leg work getting the vote out, nothing more, nothing less.

No he isn't. He is just stating that towns with Asda have lower fuel prices. More trolling and smearing council critics.

Ergo, Newbury needs an Asda to bring down fuel prices. Here's another

All supermarkets match in ASDA areas but charge up to 8p more elsewhere

You also seem to agree here

Newbury needs an Asda.

I'm not really going to add anything to the discussion other than Andy's at his straw man fallacies again.
Really doubt he uses it with any sort of distinction and just uses it when he doesn't really have anything useful to say.

I like petrol. It smells nice.
